Live Mesh Technology Preview AnnouncedApril 23, 2008 – 4:48 AM
Today Microsoft is unveiling a technology preview to a really neat new software+services platform called Live Mesh. Live Mesh is a brand new platform that helps your devices act together through the internet enabling users such as you and me to manage, access, and share their files and applications from nearly anywhere. By bringing user’s files, applications, and devices together along with the combination of social networking (such as with news feeds) – Live Mesh creates a unique platform experience.
First and foremost Live Mesh is a new platform. The first phase of the technology preview process provides a foundational experience that exposes core concepts and functionality of the platform. In the near future developers can expect to be able to take advantage of Live Mesh to extend their software to the Web, and their services to the desktop and devices.
Today’s technology preview is a pre-Beta release designed to get early feedback to make the platform even better.
I’ve been lucky to be given the chance to play with Live Mesh for the last couple weeks. I’ve had a great experience with Live Mesh so far and thought I’d share my experiences with you.
